Couple of days rest and Nuggets playing without their three best players. Hope we take advantage of this opportunity.

Yeah, this is one we ABSOLUTELY need to steal on the road. We've got a back to back in Utah tomorrow night, so this high altitude is gonna kick our butts, I'm sure.

Hopefully this is just a convenient excuse for rest before Utah tomorrow night since Nuggets are down 3 players.

Is this the new normal?

Pacer starters taking turns to sit out games with injuries

Feels like the new normal

I bet once Warren is back it'll be the turn of Myles or Domas to sit out some games

Just WOW ! How do you lose tonight ! Really no excuses. Sure everyone on both teams are professionals. BUT there’s different levels of talent and Pacers played down to their opponents level tonight.

So they play uninspired first half of basketball. Denver realizes that they can hang because Pacers aren’t building a 5-10 point lead.
Next the defense sucks so much a rookie Nnaji goes 7-10 for 19 points.
Then no Goga, Holiday and Duarte combine for a stellar 4-17 shooting display.

I’m glad Carlisle was subbing frequently however to not use Goga and a bit more Kelan Martin I don’t get. Duarte is struggling so sit him down and make him perform to get minutes.
I would have started
Brogdon
Holiday
Craig
Sabonis
Turner
Then brought McConnell, Duarte, Lamb, Goga, Martin, and Brissett as subs for rest. Rookie needs to feel the wrath of his run of bad play he’s been on. Looks nothing like at the start of the season. If he’s tired then I understand and play him less which has started to happen.

Missed opportunity to nab a W with Jokic out.

Duarte hit a mini-wall at altitude. he just didn't have it last night and without LeVert (and Warren) we had too few scorers.
